Learn Why Natural Handmade Skincare Products with Organic Ingredients is Better for Your Skin
Updated: Mar 4, 2019
Your skin is important. As the largest organ in the body it has a lot of jobs - it regulates your body temperature, protects your muscles, bones and organs and more importantly, it is the first line of defense against the outside world. The skin is a complicated network of layers, each providing their own level of functionality and protection. Still these layers are can be vulnerable when faced with certain artificial compounds.
What you put on your skin is crucial. If you put chemical-filled soaps, lotions and creams on your skin, your body can absorb some of these toxins. Mostly the size of molecules determines whether or not they can penetrate each layer. Because of their make-up artificial chemicals in conventional beauty products, like phthalates, parabens, and a ever growing host of others, are designed to be adsorbed directly into your body, so they can act quickly. Chemicals commonly found in these products can build up and cause serious health concerns when used long term. Things like skin irritation, organ toxicity, hormone imbalance and even cancer have been reported. The science is scary; some of the biggest brands in the skincare industry could actually be causing damage to the skin of men and woman across Canada and the US.
Big cosmetic companies are making billions of dollars selling skincare products with ingredient names you do not recognize or cannot even pronounce? It's practically impossible for the average person to understand what is in these products; yet so many people regularly apply them on their skin without even thinking about it because we’ve been told they will make our skin healthy and youthful. However, this is only a short-term fix and with long-term use, your skin can become weakened and damaged which contributes to the premature aging of your skin and possibly a number of other more serious problems. In my mind the long-term damage that could be caused by these skin care products far outweighs any short-term cosmetic benefits. Why would you want to take that risk?
Natural skincare and body products generally perform better on the skin in the long run. For these reasons 100% natural organic handmade skincare products is why Adagio Naturals was born.

Plants grown organically are found to contain higher levels of vital antioxidant, vitamins and minerals.

Adagio Naturals specifically chooses our plant based ingredients based in part, because of their high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
